  1. 8 years of tyranny was too much; the people spoke and were unified behind a platform of civility, respect, and integrity.

    We’re grafeful for the Martin McLaughlins of this world who’ll put themelves out there for us.

  2. Not really Allen-

    Cary’s mayor did not seek reelection and the guy elected was far more aligned with him than his opponent, who actually made an issue of the current mayor in the race.
